    so I'm guess'n the car was named "stud" by the rear qtr pic...sweet. My houses always come with plumbing issues and wet basements...way past swing sets, sure as hell no cool cars.

    The car was drivin in the garage in 1977 put on blocks and covered up, not touched since. It was painted in 1970 in Powhaton Point, Ohio by a shop named schwarts something or other. Never raced at the track but often on the street and one story was about racing on Rt. 7 between Bellaire and Shadyside and getting stopped by the cops and just told to knock it off, think that would happen today lol.

    Chenge the cars name from "Stud" to "Easy Rider'.......... You could even get the panel paint repaired of you can find similar lace. In about the '77 year that was parked in the barn, my Brother had a blister on a panel painted '55 Merc repaired - talk about history. The previous owner had many tickets - and my Brother inherited the reputation - got a few tickets because they would be watching for it.

    My 55 had no title as it was a drag car when I bought it. Took a week on that. I had a 29 and 28 Model A, took a couple weeks with mailing in paperwork. I must have good luck or something.

    "Original paint"? I'm pretty damn sure it wasn't painted like that at the factory. Now go get some good paint stripper and get that crap of! Think factory colours. Otherwise you're just inviting 2 barrels like Easy Rider.

    So, the solution to the old argument of "I'm gonna fix it up some day" is to just buy the guy's house and have the car included? ;) :D

    Nice score! Looks like a cool ride from the past.......

    We all know its not original paint, but original to what the car was first built as, "A STREET FREAK" WHAT WOULD YOU CALL IT?

    You're a head in a ford. All the way.
    That is an abused version of an old jingle.

    Previous owner bought car off of his brother in 72, car was equiped with dual 4bbl at one time but now has a single 4bbl holley carb, when 1st brother owned it, it had 5:13 gears and they took it for test drive and popped the clutch and proceded to rip the rear axles apart. The exh. manifolds look to be HP 406-427 not your typical 390 log exh.
     
  24. Congratulations, that's a great find! It's always great when a HAMBer gets a "barn find", rather than the restoration crowd!;)

    A few years back a tree fell on and put a 10x10 hole in roof just in front of car, luckily no damage. Also 2 extra fenders and front apron in rafters in garage, and the garage itself is like a time capsule with compressor and welders sitting there like the guy just walked out and never came back.

    I had a similar problem with a '77 Grand Prix LJ that I bought off a local doper. My dad nick-named it the "pimp-mobile". Truthfully, it did look lilke something Huggy Bear would have driven. I got so sick ofspending time with my hands on the trunk chatting with the local constabulary that I almost sold it. Eventually word got around that it was under new management, either that or all the old cops retired.

    Looks great Todd. I wouldn't touch a thing other than cleaning it up and getting it on the road. The old customs are a piece of history. Can't wait to see it!
